Today marks the anniversary of the celebrated Battle of Mojkovac in the First World War, which is unique in the history of warfare for its unique and stunning victory.

The battle was waged between January 6 and January 8, 1916 near Mojkovac, where the Sandžak Army of the Kingdom of Montenegro successfully stopped an Austro-Hungarian offensive, which enabled the Armed Forces of the Kingdom of Serbia to retreat across parts of Montenegro towards the Adriatic Sea, and thus its subsequent evacuation to Corfu.

The Army of the Kingdom of Montenegro was commanded by Serdar Janko Vukotić. It was also the last military operation led by the Army of the Kingdom of Montenegro, which joined the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes in 1918.
